This Rivian is the future.

The Rivian looks like a retro mickey mouse pickup/SUV IMHO. The Cybertruck has much better specs and price.

I'm no expert either. But in an exchange among techies, I gathered that full self driving cannot be achieved unless;

1. All other cars are similarly equipped (and ideally, communicating with each other);

2. National (or even global) infrastructure is build up so that road network has clear markers that an FSD can "read'". Analogy given, if I recall correctly, are modern planes that now has capability to take off, fly to destinations and land without a pilot. It is able to do it because of multiple redundant system that constantly communicate with markers for minute maneuvers and course correction.

Relevant to us RVers is that an FSD equipped vehicle will have to assume control to our campsite and over our unbeaten paths. I see Elon's Starlink guiding my Cybertruck on these tasks.

NTSB is telling Tesla to drop the "full" in the FSD for it being a mis-representation of its capabilities and a cause for confusion.


Either what you said or just accept reasonable expectations for FSD, lets say 1/2 the average death rate of human piloted cars, at least for the first 5 years.

Does anyone know how many Rivians have actually been made or what the production rate is? I can't find anything more current than the photos of the first one coming off of the assembly line.

Yeah, but you can actually drive one of them. And let's face it, the cybertruck looks like the south end of a north bound almost anything: butt ugly. [emoticon]

The Rivian is perfect for Mickey Mouse fans and the Cybertruck makes it look like it's from the 90's.

I thought the Sabre Pyramid was the design inspiration.

I was thinking the Rivian looked more like early 2000s, sort of like the Nissan Cube. The Cybertruck is right out of 1984, it looks like John DeLorean designed it after doing a few too many lines.
